Today I'm linking up with:
I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old. They are LOUD. That's it. That's about all I can hear, lol! When they play nicely together it is BLISS. When they fight. Ugh. We'll, if you have 2 or more kids you know what I'm talking about.
I'm loving sleeping in! But I can't wait for hubs to be on summer break too (tomorrow is his last day.) I LOVE having the windows open and getting a nice breeze through the house. I LOVE the smell of it. And I love how Colorado can have HOT nights but cool off in the evening.
I have a long to-do list.. . ugh.
This week I need to get my session notes ready for the session I'm presenting at the Dalcroze National Conference in less then 3 weeks. I need to get pedagogy and analysis "stuff" to the incoming level 2's for the Colorado Kodály Institute, where I'm teaching in July also out this week. I need to watch their teaching videos and create syllabi's for pedagogy and folk song. I need to revamp all my notes and teaching materials for level 2.
more time! I need an extra day. I need one day to be a mom and one day to get the rest of this stuff done. I also want a pedicure (getting one on Thursday with my 4 year old! We're getting them for our Disneyland trip. Hope they can do a Mickey Mouse silhouette on her toes or she'll be so sad.) And I want a massage, but I also have the scheduled for Saturday. We're leaving for a road trip to CA and to go to Disneyland on Sunday so I want to start the vacation out right!
to find balance. Balance between professional and personal. I feel often times that I'm missing out on being a mom. I know independent play for kids is important but I also want to play with them and not be always working. Especially during the summer. Like I did last year. I also need to find a balance or work vs. relaxation. I've become rather grumpy. It's not fun.
Summer Bucket List:
Spend time with my kids. Because, you know, they're fabulous and only this age once.
Date my husband. Yea, the dude that helped me make the kids. He's a pretty neat guy. I'd go so far as to say he's my best friend. I wonder if he'll go out with me if I ask him?
Work on TpT items. There's SO much that I want to make. There's so much that I have clip art to make (slight addiction there). But again, also balance.
Speaking of TpT, a lot of music teachers are participating in the $2TuesdayMusicFlashSale today!
Head on over and check it out!
My product on sale was just posted today and includes two fun games for practicing the orchestra/band instruments
